A driver († 59) got into the opposite lane on Tuesday morning at 9.50 a.m. in Henggart ZH on the A4 towards Schaffhausen. The reasons for this are still unclear. He collided head-on with an oncoming trailer from a 28-year-old chauffeur.
As a result of the violent impact, the car was thrown back several meters, as the Zurich Cantonal Police wrote. It came to a standstill lying on the roof. The handlebar was injured so badly that he died on the scene of the accident.
Highway blocked for several hours
The highway had to be closed for several hours. The Weinland base fire brigade was called in for the rescue and traffic services.
